Question about 2002 Subaru Forester

2 Answers

My headlights do not work on my 2002 Subaru Forester. Both headlights stopped working at the same time. I replaced the bulb on one light about a year ago. Now both lights went out so I don't think it's a burned out bulb

Most likely you have a short where the electrical attachment to one of the bulbs has melted inside or burnt the wires off. Also check the fuses which most likely have blown. There is one for the left headlight and one for the right headlight in the fuse compartment under the hood. Also the other headlight bulb may be burnt out. So I would replace both bulbs and both fuses. You can open the attachment caps and see if the wires are in tact or a short melted the plastic inside. Does the boot have a hole in it which could have left water creep inside the wire cap attachment to the bulb shorting out the circuit?

Subaru Forester, 2003. clock light and dome light not working (clock works, just no light at night). all other dash lights appear to function. i replaced fuse marked 12 in engine fuse panel, described...


The clock works, correct? It is just not illuminating when your headlights are turned on? If this is the case then it is most likely that you have 2 burned out bulbs. The forester clock bulb is Sylvania bulb part #2723

Hope that helps! I have a bunch of clock related info on my website www.autoclockrepair.com. Let me know if I can be of assistance.

My clock light on my 2004 Subaru Forester won't light anymore. The dome light works so I know its not a fuse.


Is this for a 1999 Forester or for a 2004 forester, the title lists both years. If it is a 1999 model then the problem most likely resides within the clock itself. Unfortunately, many clocks of this vintage go bad over time. I offer a reasonable repair service and many clock removal instruction sheets at www.autoclockrepair.com
I'd be happy to assist.

Headlight low beam


Test to see if you have voltage at the bulb connector in low beam position. I'd almost bet that if there is no voltage there for the low beams that you have a bad high/low switch.

You will need to look at the plug for the headlight. If it looks good, I would look for the headlight low beam fuse.

Subaru intermittent Headlight socket


Had same problem with my 1999 Forester. Jiggled socked for months until I separated it from the lamp and noticed part of the socket had melted and cracked. Checked internet for socket and hoping I wouldn't have to spend big bucks for whole light assembly just to get the socket part. No luck. So called Subaru dealer in Richmond and was told that Subaru doesnt make socket anymore. The good news is they puchase universal standard socket in piggytail form. So for 8 bucks, I got the univeral socket and spliced into existing three wires and works perfectly. The guy at the dealership parts department, which is different from service department, said that they routinely sell the sockets since it is a know problem, of which models not sure. Didnt purchase one for other headlight, if it goes, since guy says they stock the part all of the time. Sounds like something you could get from electical stores, etc. besides Dealership. Hope this helps.
BTW, got screwed on the bad headgaske problems...wasnt under warranty and total near 2500 bucks. Their solution of adding coolant conditioner is a con job.
